Patriots Fire Sale Possible


Recommended Posts

You think maybe this is Belichick's last year also? Fire sale players, stock up on draft picks, then have the next GM/HC figure out their players. I can't picture Belichick having the patience for building-up a new young roster at his age, especially without Brady instilling discipline into them.

That is a good question. He for sure wants to catch Shula for the most wins but doubt he can do that in NE post Brady.

Thuney be at LEAST a 3rd probably a 2nd.. Gilmore is an elite and coming off a d player of the year season.. so he be more so.

I'm sorry, I'm really not trying to make fun of your wishes but when I hear something like this, my mind races off to this scenario-

 

I would love to get a Lamborghini Huracan, but only if it doesn't cost much more than a Mustang GT.

 

I'm pretty sure nearly everyone has a desired scenario of their own along those lines. :)

Gilmore has one more year for $12 million? And Thuney is under the franchise tag.. which is why a 3rd at least because they get that at least if he walks.

I think all depends on the outcome of this weeks Pat/Bills game.   If they win, they may think they can still win the division.  

I’d be shocked if Gilmore is. Patriot by this time on Tuesday.  I say he goes to Seattle for a 2nd and a 4th.  Or maybe TB gets really dumb and sends us a 1st for him.

Thanks im reluctant now but I think if they lose Bills beat them they will get desperate and Colts might be able to get them cheaper than expected.

I'm thinking Titans and fans here freak out and call Ballard a joke for no reason

Why? Gilmore under contract for next year and why would BB accept less than he ghouls get if Thuney walked? Sorry they aren’t going cheaper.

The media makes it seem like they are desperate to get rid of players

This is BB he isn’t ever desperate. He considers himself smarter than everyone else, and in football he usually is.  Gilmore is the only one who I think is definitely gone. And I see a 2nd and like a 5th for him or if a team is desperate for help maybe a 1st. 
 

id love see them fleece Patricia and trade Gilmore for Goliday and a third. Lol

What would it take to get Harry?

I would guess a 4th rounder. That's probably a fair selling point for the Pats. He's still young, and just needs a better QB behind him. Former 1st round pick has talent still.

I like Harry but I'm not sure he would help us much this year.  I would think if we trade it would be for a proven veteran WR stuck on a losing team.

Better QB? He had the Goat throwing to him last year.

I won't go over this too much. If you understand this great, if not, oh well. I know you are a Pats fan. Brady being the goat doesn't mean he was the best QB in the NFL last year or even in the top half (he wasn't good). This year, he's had Cam Newton and Jarrett Stidham who have been slightly worse throwing the ball. Harry has had issues getting open, but it's not all his fault. 

 

Don't pretend like Brady last year was Brady in his prime just because of his prior accomplishments.

Maybe Harry not suited for the Dinking & Dunking pass patterns? 

He doesn’t get open enough for most WB take a shot throwing it to him and he is injury prone. (Although this concussion is in Newton)

He needs at least 4 really good seasons for that; more likely 7-8.

Now you take your blinders off and look at what Brady is doing this year.  He is already back in the MVP talk he is doing so well.  So ya Brady may not be at the top of his game he is still top 5 in the NFL as his stats prove THIS year.  Now if you had said the Pats O line was in shambles last year because Andrews was on IR and both tackles were gone most of the year and that made it harder to prove ok.. but it is obviously not Brady.

 

oh and if you wanted him take more like a 2 and a 3 if not a 1st. BB isn’t going give up on him, he knows Cam is garbage.

I truly believe if you guys had Brady you would be 5-2, I think with Rivers you would be as well, jmo.

Cam isn't on their level, he had 1 great year in 2015 and that is what made his name. Yeah he won an MVP but stunk in the SB. He lost to Peyton Manning who basically scared that whole team on his last leg lmao . Ok it was Denver's D but you get it :thmup:

    • He should sign with the Texans... Heck he already owns the stadium!   Oh, that's right, they don't have a QB to throw the ball to him.  
    • I realize that under the current conditions, it's not easy to talk about a lot of things, but there are so many topics that are open for discussion. You had a whole season that just finished you can ask about. Superman mentioned a lot of them already - player evaluation, areas for improvement, things he's happy with on the current roster and wants to keep for next season... just in general questions about the state of the roster. I'd love to hear about tendencies he's seen throughout the league that have made an impression on him, I'd love to hear what he thinks separates our current roster from the best teams in the league, they are talking about moving Q to LT... I'd love to hear what they consider important traits and skills for that position and whether Q has those, etc. and this is without even going into anything advanced Xs and Os... Also, notice that it's not my job to come up with questions... it's THEIRS. It's what they are at least partially being paid for(I'm just saying a ton of the questions they go for are incredibly banal and boring). But instead here's what we got:   -17 questions and among them: --- how important is getting the QB position right? yes, this was an actual question. You can spot the uninspiring quote begging questions from a mile away - in general they are in the form of "how important is..." or "how much..." and the answer cannot be anything but "very important" or "very much" and from then on you rely on your interviewee to carry the water for you and get you the quote you need. It's questions you know the answer to, but you will ask anyway just so you can have the quote from the HC, GM, player, etc. --- how important is a QB's confidence for playing the game? Can you imagine an answer other than - very important. --- how important was retaining Matt Eberflus for continuity? ...  --- "How much do you enjoy coming up with a creative way... do you embrace the challenge of having your system fit the QB you have?"(this is the 3d question on this topic... notice I didn't include the first 2 here, because there is some value to understanding Frank's view on how you plan the offense based on your QB's skillset. But come on... I'm almost certain this reporter is writing a story about the "challenges" of it and didn't quite get the quote he needed so... lets go back to it and ask the same question in 3d different way...  --- "How much have you self-evaluated about 4th down decisions"  --- "How important was your previous relationship with Philip Rivers and his knowledge of the offense in terms of getting things rolling more quickly and how much benefit is that for any QB coming into a new situation." I almost feel bad for including this one, because it's kind of a creative cheeky way to ask about Wentz without asking about Wentz... BUT... notice.... it's the exact same quote begging, uninspired question, whether it's about Rivers or Wentz... it doesn't matter if they were allowed to mention Wentz in this situation. The question is the same garbage that you already know the answer to... in fact... you probably have asked the exact same quesiton last year about Rivers.    Frank is a freaking trooper for going through with this, BTW. He is giving thoughtful answers and expounding on even the most eyeroll inducing questions. This media market is lucky to have him(and Ballard) to do their job for them, but I can't help but feel like those press-conferences and interviews are being wasted on such dull and unremarkable interviewers.    So between 35-40% is what I would call "quote begging" questions that don't add much of anything and don't serve much of any purpose but to be a filler to a boring story, questions you(and everybody else) know the answer to but ask anyway just so you can put the quote in a story.    Now, I probably wasn't fair in painting the entire group with this broad of a brush, because some of them actually seem to do good job and I will retract that broad of a generalization on my part. For example, both Joel Erickson and Kevin Bowen I thought asked reasonable questions in this one. Holder too...   I mean... I don't know if I overestimate my opinion. I don't even know what that means. It's MY opinion after all... if I didn't hold it in high regard, I wouldn't hold it. I realize I might be wrong on some things, though. I'm very much welcoming of other opinions that might change mine. Very few if any of my opinions are set in stone.    I live in Bulgaria. I've been following different sports teams throughout my life in my home country, in the US(NBA, NFL), In Europe - Spanish La Liga(soccer), British Premier League(soccer), German Bundesliga(soccer), Champions league(soccer), Euroleague(basketball), etc.   YES! If they can't talk about Wentz, why waste 6-7 questions on it instead of going for things that are available for you to talk about. You just had a whole season full of football to talk about. You are in a period that is dedicated for improving the roster. Ask him about what needs to be improved. Ask him about what he loved from the team last year and what he wants to keep going forward. They've been talking about Q transitioning to LT potentially. Why not ask him what are the traits and skills required from that position that are different than LG? Does Q possess those? And if not yet, what's the things he will need to work on to make the transition? Ask him broad questions about the league, new tendencies he's seen, etc... There is so much you can ask about without going into "how important is continuity" or "how important is confidence for the QB"... questions you've heard the answer to a million times by a million people and it's never "confidence is overrated... the more shaken the QB is the better"....     
    • If we even get 50% of this Wentz... holy cow.... I’m holding my breath because we could be #### good.
    • So, sell the number to your QB, and set up a nice college fund for your kid who's on the way... easy out for a testy situation. Honestly I'd rather see Wentz in a new number, new team, new start.
